Teaching in Troubled Times

About the Program

The Teaching in Troubled Times series began in 2017 as a series of timely dialogues elevating some of the most pressing social and political questions that enter our lives and our classrooms. The series has fermented vibrant discussion and delivered ‘on-the-ground’ tools to support our students’ complex lives.  The series is co-hosted by the American Cultures Center, Academic Innovation Studio, Center for Teaching and Learning, and Division of Equity & Inclusion.

The Teaching in Troubled Times workshops will continue to build an arc of learning for the campus, bringing together experts from a cross-section of interests. The Teaching in Troubled Times workshop series will cumulatively present a unique opportunity to delve into the complications and opportunities our knowledge of student life at Berkeley brings. In this series of workshops, we will form a learning community that together will consider the meaning of inclusivity, acceptance, and belonging on and off our campus.
